that unusual to see them at this meeting. however, unlike previous meetings, chuck limberg was not dressed ins wearing a badge. he was in plain street clothes and came over to me and other members of the public, as we came into the room and said that he was not on duty, and that,éota s a private citizen he was helping mumsy with security issues and he then directed members of the public where to sit during the meeting. two very controversial issues were on the agenda, which is why there were a number of members of the public at this meeting. and one of them had to do with nudity the other controversial item had to do with the control of the rainbow flag at milk plaza two very contentious issues in the castro. when these issues came up for a vote, members of mumsy, chuck
9:05 pm
limberg came to members of the public and told us we had to leave. he was enforcing rules for mumsy. he said he was off duty however every other meeting i've been to, he's been in uniform, he's been on duty. i need verification that hehlguk indeed was a @ privateúña=y: citizen at this meeting, carrying out these duties. the other thing is i am very@$gct concerned that there are also seven uniform beat patrol officers on the sidewalk outside of this meeting. why were so many of them there? we need some answers. why? because a number of us are really concerned at the impression that the mission station police force is more favorable towards the merchants than towards activists. i think you've got to be very concerned about any appearance of favoritism toward one

9:10 pm
of the united states a run during the playoff of eight home games that wrapped up with a world series celebration, and halloween that was uneventful, by all accounts and all this down a couple hundred officers. unfortunately toward the end of october, we had an uptick in violence in the mission to which the officers went right to work and i think the final total for the month there were 42 gun&dfegz arrests 45rmc's a tech 9 andu mack 11 and we got through another month and year to date gun[0ç vñ violence in san francisco esdown nearñr 10% as opposed to last year. again i think themnmsg pulling a yeoman's duty out in the street and now they're gearing up for what will hopefully be a great holiday season and switch gears/ ÷h[4"ñ and we will be doing things with kids and the elderly and the community all that stuff on top of trying to keep the gun and
9:11 pm
the violent rate down. unfortunately property crime has clicked up about 6%, but we're trying to get a handle on that too as property crime arrests are up nearly 10%. so it's all a work in progress. i understand that the meeting -- the last meeting that i missed there were some questions. so deputy chief relayed thataft0!w me one or more commissioners was curiousyññ?ñ? about drug court. drug court, although i believevxòp strongly in drug court and go to all the graduations it's not really a part of the police department. it was found theön#w+ in 1995, it's an alternative to incarceration and it can get your record expunged.ñr at graduation and i can tell the commissioners when the next graduation is -- there's a formal declaration that charges are dismissed. someone from the court shows up and actually does that. it's very cool. the last one was last month, about 22 graduates finished that makes the total about
9:12 pm
4,000 9 they do about 400 a year now, haveéel some handouts here and i can pass them out. it's -- when most of the folks that go to drug court are marginally housefph9aíz and/or unemployed and by the time they graduate 100% have stable housing and some source of legal;ú3 income. although the numbers are not huge per class, any little bit helps as the recidivism rate is decidedly lower thanx!exq4 those that do not go to drug court. to hear the commentary of the folkst( at graduation, they, themselves, can't believe got through l#$gçvñ ó1 the program. they all say that they did it just to sort of work the system and get their case dismissed. by the time realize they're not allowed to get it through that way and that's->w7au a good thing. another thing that the deputy chief brought up,b1fm$ or i guess it'sñp?p&yt actually on the agenda,
9:13 pm
is where are we with 5.05. i think it's the content is good. the formatting'seq"zó(wm not so good, as opposed to the old order. i'm working with the city attorney to correct it as to form. and i think that within the next 30 days w the draft for everyone to look at here, which is again where we would be with the department domestic violence officer related go that i'm getting help actually from sergeant back there my formatter for submission to ms. porter that z(r make sure it reads right legally. we want a professional product to you and we're closeñ?ñ? on those within 30 days. as far as the calendaring of the less lethal weapons out of deference to azñ?ñ? special event one of the commissioners and the headlines for/cñ?ñ? everyone concerned on both sides on the issue in
9:14 pm
tfdñ?ñ?he community in meeting with the director and three commissioners involved the decision was that i have the community meetings incqñ?ñ? january and repick up these issues. so there wasgñ?ñ?ñ as little acrimony as possible holidays as related to the san francisco police department. that's it. i=xñ?ñ? would ask sgt. crudo to come up and proceed with the fdrb and oas summaries. >> i want to thankiñpñw ç you. the efforts of the police officers during that week with the0w35$ prayed the world series celebration, was quite remarkable to see the officers out on the street. you had all hands on deck. even had the officers from the police academy working. you did a great job managing!2w0b that, keeping the peace, and keeping people happy. thankh+syxkm you. commissioners in your packet there3kzñ71[y is a memorandum where
